Azam FC End Pre-Season Camp in Uganda Unbeaten

Tanzanian giants Azam Football Club ended their 10 day pre-season camp in Uganda with a game against Vipers on Monday.

After sailing through in the first games that included drawing with Uganda Cranes, the money bags made sure they finished unscratched with a slim 1-0 victory against Vipers at St. Mary’s stadium, Kitende.

The lone goal of the goal cake in the 28th minute was through Yaya Zaid who converted a penalty.

Vipers had several chances but failed to utilize them as the visitors showed resilience throughout the game.

The result meant Azam ended their tour with 5 games played, winning three and drawing on two occasions.

The team jetted into the country on August 5 and conducted their first training session at Startimes stadium the following day.

They played out a 2-2 draw against Uganda Cranes on Tuesday last week before another stalemate against Uganda Premier League champions KCCA FC.

The final three games have ended victories against URA FC (2-0), Onduparaka (3-0) and Vipers (1-0).

Azam FC hopes to play more two build-up games before getting the league underway early next month.

Aristica Cioba, the Azam head coach believes the camp in Uganda has been important giving them a good test.

“We have benefited enough from the tour, we have played against the very best teams and this has helped us to know our stand before the start of the season,” he said.
